Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

So, on this post, I added the Honeypot question post notice, and if you can see what's been deleted on that post, you'll understand why.

Subsequently, a bounty was started and a bounty post notice was also attached to the question. When the bounty ended, the bounty post notice was auto-removed by the Community user, as it should be.

However, somewhere between the time I added the post notice and today, the Honeypot question post notice was removed, and not by a moderator (or that would appear in the revision history). I suspect that either the bounty post notice replaced the original notice, or upon removal, Community removed both simultaneously.

Ideally, moderator post notices should be removed by moderators (or have a set timer like locks). They shouldn't be accidentally removed by users starting a bounty on them.

The notice wasn't actually removed; there was a bug in the logic when denormalizing the "does this post have notices?" information. This caused no notice to be displayed, even though there actually was one. Fixed now; thanks!
